Re: Dinah Shumate Luttrell - On 24 Oct 1808 in Circuit Court of Franklin County, Virginia Deed Book 5, pg. 540  "Samuel Luttrell and Dinah Luttrell my wife" give power of attorney to Samuel Shumate in Henry County, VA to "sue for and recover. . .on the estate of Daniel Shumate, deceas'd, in Fauquier County"  ???

Michael's wife is Dinah (see his Will below), but probably not Dinah Shumate.
